What's the minimum set of packages needed to run the stand alone Unity player on Ubuntu?
Trying to run the stand alone player on Ubuntu server in batch mode.
I also would like to find out what dependencies are needed so bumping this question.
Bump!! I also want this question answered!

Since this hasn't been answered yet, I thought I will suggest going through every binary you can find provided with the exported game and run ldd.
$ ldd ./mono.so
This should at least provide you with lists of what the game needs to link to at runtime. Run the lists through the unique command to get rid of repeated results.
I am going to be doing this shortly before I create some .rpms for our games, I will post my findings here :).
EDIT: Sorry for the delay. I lost this thread when the Unity forums had that large change a while back.
[kpedersen@sandiego angrybots]$ ldd angrybots.x86
linux-gate.so.1 => (0xb778a000)
libGLU.so.1 => /lib/libGLU.so.1 (0xb76ee000)
libGL.so.1 => /usr/lib/nvidia-304xx/libGL.so.1 (0xb7612000)

libXext.so.6 => /lib/libXext.so.6 (0x4d3b9000)
libXcursor.so.1 => /lib/libXcursor.so.1 (0x4da67000)
libdl.so.2 => /lib/libdl.so.2 (0x4cd6e000)
libpthread.so.0 => /lib/libpthread.so.0 (0x4cd75000)

libm.so.6 => /lib/libm.so.6 (0x4cdaa000)
libgcc_s.so.1 => /lib/libgcc_s.so.1 (0x4cfbd000)
libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0x4cbad000)
libstdc++.so.6 => /lib/libstdc++.so.6 (0x4dba6000)
libnvidia-tls.so.304.108 => /usr/lib/nvidia-304xx/tls/libnvidia-tls.so.304.108 (0xb760c000)
libnvidia-glcore.so.304.108 => /usr/lib/nvidia-304xx/libnvidia-glcore.so.304.108 (0xb5906000)
libxcb.so.1 => /lib/libxcb.so.1 (0x4d1c5000)
libXrender.so.1 => /lib/libXrender.so.1 (0x4d542000)
libXfixes.so.3 => /lib/libXfixes.so.3 (0x4d929000)
libXau.so.6 => /lib/libXau.so.6 (0x4d1e9000)
Basically the dependencies pulled in by Unity is impressively small. All of them are provided by Linux standard base (LSB), X11 or the implementation of OpenGL. This makes a nice change and should certainly help a game exported by Unity run on the many different Linux distributions (for a while anyway).
The provided libmono.so doesn't pull in anything extra either. I don't believe there are any external libraries loaded dynamically either so this is pretty much it :)
FYI: Unity Editor (tested 4.2.0f4) is also working very nicely in Wine for me with the following guide: http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=28175 If you had trouble before, give it another shot with the latest version of Wine :)
@k.pedersen did you ever figure out the dependencies?
bump ! bump !

It didn't help me though, because I need Unity Pro to run my Build with -batchmode. And I don't have enough money, hence thinking about switching to UDK. For 1400 € I can rent it like 5 years, lol.

"-batchmode" command line argument is only available when publishing using Unity Pro.
